As Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to steal the world’s spotlight, the Islamic State militant group known as ISIS is taking full advantage of flying under the radar. Coupled with the ending of a 20-year war, ISIS has been rounding up the boys and mapping out the chaos that lies ahead. They’ve called on their worldwide supporters to pick up where they left off by renewing their attacks. As the group attempts to reestablish its name, no targets are off-limits.
The Jerusalem Post released an audio message sent by ISIS’s new spokesperson, Abu-Omar al-Muhajir. The group is seeking revenge for the killing of their former leader Abu Ibrahim al-Qurashi last February in Syria during a U.S.-led military operation ordered by Joe Biden.
al-Qurashi, rather than be captured, took himself and his family out by detonating explosives within the house where they’d been holed up.
al-Muhajir also called for revenge for the killing of former ISIS spokesperson, Al-Muhajir Abu Hamza al-Qurashi. “We announced, with the help of God, a blessed battle to avenge the two Sheikhs, Sheikh Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Qurashi and Sheikh al-Muhajir Abu Hamza al-Qurashi,” the audiotape said.
“Fight them, and God will chastise them at your hands,” Muhajjr said. He specifically called for renewed attacks throughout Europe but welcomed any that might take place in the U.S.
Muhajir told ISIS supporters that they should take advantage of the “available opportunity” presented to them by “the crusaders fighting each other.” The element of surprise would immediately bolster the militant group back into the limelight.
ISIS, with a deep hatred for Jews, has never stopped its attacks on Israel. Muhajir urged for the attacks to continue and escalate. Of the guilty militants in Israel, Muhajir said that more ISIS supporters need to “follow their path and arm themselves with weapons and carry out further attacks.”
“These acts caused pain to the Jews and showed the world that there is a difference between those who fight and die for God and those who fight for empty political slogans,” he added.
Because ISIS is just now rebuilding its strength and replacing all of its dead leaders, not much is known about Muhajir or the group’s newest reigning king, Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi who was just appointed in March.
Remote ISIS groups have been popping up in western Africa and establishing strongholds throughout Afghanistan. By all accounts, they’re preparing to give the Taliban a run for its money which will dive the Muslim nation straight back into the muck and mire, as is the habit of its bloody history.
In January, ISIS pulled off a successful prison break in Syria to help fortify its forces. The prison had been run by both U.S. and Kurdish forces. The number of ISIS fighters who got away was never disclosed.
ISIS won’t go away until each and every last one of them are dead, but even this would solve nothing in a civilization that thrives on violence and destruction. New sword swingers would soon pick up the slack and their hatred of everything Western would be no less severe.
